  • I went with a group of 10 friends. They prepared us a chicken to the spectacular album. Before they brought us a very good empanadas. The attention was spectacular, very good wave that attended to us. It is highly recommended to enjoy the mountain, you can go in the family also.

  • Excellent this place. We made the excursion to the mines with rappel and the truth that is not to be missed. In addition to a very good price we ate an excellent very full roast, served as a few Kings (includes everything and it can be repeated: Chori, sausage, roast, empty, salad, grilled potato, homemade bread, soft drinks). There had missed a glass of red wine only.
